Henborth (Holy Island)


Henborth is a beach of two small coves on the west side of Anglesey's Holy Island. Roadside parking is available at the junction of the lane to South Stack (Grid Ref: SH217815 / Lat : 53.3007°N, Lon : 4.6774°W. A narrow path leads to some steep steps (with a few steps missing) which descend to the more southerly of the two coves (below). This cove is mostly rocky. The northern cove consists of small shingle and some sand backed by high cliffs of soft mudstone. It can be reached at by walking over the rocks of the small headland. A steep path leading up the cliffs here is private and won't take you back to the road.

The photos were taken at low tide.
